Professionalism at its best! It was trial and error with other schools in Aiken county. We have finally found this amazing group of professionals who love to teach! My only regret is that we didn't get into this school years ago!!! Both my kids are so happy to go to school now. They have zero problems with bullies. They love their specials and are becoming more well rounded! The teachers communicate in a timely manner and you can tell they truly like their jobs and enjoy the kids!! It's a joy to be able to brag about such a great school!!
